Omaanda is a luxurious lodge set within the Zannier Reserve by N/a’ankusê, an incredible animal conservancy reserve of 9000 hectares near the Namibian capital Windhoek. The camp offers ten spacious round thatched huts overlooking the boundless savannah, inviting guests to stay right in the heart of a unique reserve, in luxurious yet wild retreat.
Omaanda has been imagined as a sanctuary more than as a hotel; a place where conservation and nature lead every decision. With 360-degree views over the African plain, Omaanda has been (eco)conceived to melt into the breath-taking background. Relying mostly on solar power energy, featuring a special water treatment facility and preventing endangered animal poaching with 24/7 surveillance, the lodge brings sustainability and design together with a bespoke service to offer an authentic experience.
Its traditional architecture genuinely blends with the simplicity and vastness of the surrounding landscape. The warmth design, evocative of the earth, is inspired by the traditional architecture of Owambo. This local ethny is known for its secular and sober know-how respectful of the nature.
Keeping with the peaceful rhythm of the place, the restaurant serves a varied and refined cuisine, from home-made breakfast to delicious dishes to share, including generous pieces of ‘game meat’ from the spit. Melting into the incredible background, the bar on the edge of the heated outdoor infinity pool offers a refreshing retreat after unforgettable made-to-measure excursions. The friendly ambiance is energized with the cozy bar and the nearby ‘boma’. The atmosphere of timeless intimacy continues in the spa, where massages and cares inspired by local beliefs are provided in two double treatment rooms.
Numerous respectful excursions are offered to experience the African Savannah and its impressive fauna and flora. Besides traditional animal tracking excursions, guests can discover the sustainable and conservancy actions in place within the reserve.
